Heat wave: When will it end, why is it grounding planes?

Hosted by

It’s going to hit more than 120 degrees in Palm Springs and Death Valley today, and 96 degrees in the Valley. In Sacramento, meteorologists from the National Weather Service fried bacon and tried to bake cookies inside a car -- it was almost 200 degrees inside. Phoenix is feeling it too. Planes there are being grounded because of the heat.
